Saturdays, 8:00 am. The MJ 100k is a little longer and faster than the Middle of the Road Ride. For those who remember the Sweetish Hill Bakery rides, this has the vibe of those. 2x2 lines, social at times, but down to business others. That means you can prove it at the City Limit road signs—like the olden days.
Saturdays, 8:30 am - 11:45 am. The MOTR ride is a great fit for the intermediate rider who has spent some time on the bike riding in groups and on urban roads but is looking for a bit more challenge in distance and speed.
This is one of the oldest group rides in Austin, meeting every Sunday morning for over 30 years! Riders should understand the etiquette of group riding, be able to change a tire and address minor mechanical issues. Wheels down at 8:15 am.
The Mid-Century is our popular, 50+ road ride. Maintaining the spirit of a ride, not a Saturday morning race, the Mid-Century rolls out and maintains a steady 2x2 pace. There may be a few occasions when the ride speeds up, but it will always regroup soon after. This is a no drop ride, but riders should always bring a cell phone, flat repair kit and the ability to change a tube.
Tuesdays & Thursdays, 7 am. These rides are led by the Violet Crown team, and will depart every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 7:00 am. Riders should have experience riding in groups, be able to change a tire and address minor mechanical issues. Routes will vary from southerly, mostly flat terrain, to northwesterly hilly ride depending on wind direction and the whims of the ride leader. These rides are meant to provide some steady tempo training hours.
